Abstract

We summarize the Danish residential solar photovoltaics and small wind turbine market from a consumer perspective for the Danish Consumer Council. We draw on background research, interviews, information sessions, and a consumer survey to learn about consumer motivations, deterrents, and challenges. Consumers are motivated by money savings, deterred by upfront cost, and challenged by technical information, but find the process easy overall. Incentive programs and independent information deserve additional research.
